This year’s 2021 Write Around the Murray festival theme is ‘The Things We Love’. We’ll explore the people, places and things we love, in all their challenging complexity and diversity.
Join us for an exploration of the things that make life worth living. That call on our courage, resilience and creativity.
We invited half a dozen of this year’s programmed authors to record short responses to the festival theme. We present the first of them here for your enjoyment and delight.
We love this ‘postcard’ from Vin Maskell, creative director of Stereo Stories, made by his son Jesse and featuring music by Vin’s brother Peter. So many great memories. Wish you were here!
Tim shares the words of a sci-fi great, reflects on the prescience of cyberpunk, and reminds us why science fiction, and indeed all fiction, matters more than ever.
